The National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has declared that he had informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his presidential ambition.
Asiwaju Tinubu disclosed this while addressing State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The APC stalwart, however, said he was yet to publicly disclose his ambition as he was still in consultations with various interests across the country.
Describing his ambition to be President, the party stalwart said it is a lifelong dream.
When asked if he had informed Buhari of his ambition, the former Lagos Governor said: “I can answer that with a categorical yes. I’ve informed the President of my intention but I’ve not informed Nigerians yet.
I’m still consulting and I have no problem consulting and I’ve not set a parameter of limitation to the extent of how many people will I consult.
“You will soon hear all you want to hear, it’s a categorical declaration. You’ve gotten that truth from me that I’ve informed Mr. President of my ambition and you don’t expect more answers than that.”
Asked how Buhari responded, he said: “He’s a democrat, he didn’t ask me to stop. He didn’t ask me not to attempt and pursue my ambition. It’s a lifelong ambition.
